The report presents a preliminary technical study of low emission vehicle powerplants which use gas as the powerplant working fluid. The scope of the program concerns evaluation of the thermodynamics and preliminary design of several cycles which include but are not necessarily limited to: (1) The External Combustion Piston Engine; (2) The Closed and Open Brayton Cycle Engines; (3) The Ackeret-Keller Cycle Powerplant; (4) The Stirling Cycle Engines; (5) Evaluation of Rankine Cycle and Other Closed Cycle Working Fluid Hazards. The report includes consideration of those factors which affect the general suitability of the powerplant to the automotive type vehicle, and a comparison of the overall relative merits of the several power systems.
